Student Health Services


Wellness Is Quality Living

Your health plays an important role in how well you achieve your academic, social and personal goals during your college years.
Wellness involves choosing a positive lifestyle that moves you toward optimal health.

Health Services Is...

More than a place to go when you are ill. Our goals are: 

  • to help you develop a healthy lifestyle that will enable you to become the best you can be.
  • to offer a strong emphasis on prevention of illness through education.
  • to encourage healthy choices that will improve one's quality of life.

The Doctor Is In

 Health Services is available to all Marywood students who have submitted a completed Health History Physical & Immunization Form.


The professional staff of Health Services is committed to meeting today's highest health standard. Registered Nurses are available to provide health care that is sensitive to the needs of all students. A certified Registered Nurse Practitioner is available Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., either by appointment or walk-in. This is an exceptional cost saving benefit for our students.

Health Records

All information is strictly confidential. Access to medical records is limited to Health Services personnel and may not be released without the student's written consent.

Once accepted for admission, all students are encouraged to submit a completed Health History Physical & Immunization Form. No student will be seen for non-emergencies unless her/his record is on file.

Referral Off-Campus

Students requiring medical follow-up will be referred to appropriate services off-campus. Transportation and fees incurred are the responsibility of the student.

Medical Excuses
